Amit Makhija Eliminated by New Chip Leader Jeremy Kottler

Aug 27, 2014

David Chiu raises to 13,000 on the button, Jeremy Kottler reraises to 37,000 out of the small blind, and, after some deliberation, Amit Makhija four-bets to 75,000 from the big blind. Chiu folds.

Kottler takes a minute or so to think things over, then reraises to 155,000 total. Makhija tanks for a bit, then calls.

The flop comes [Kd6c2d] and Kottler slides out a bet of 103,000. Makhija takes a little time, then moves all-in for around 415,000. Kottler calls immediately, flipping over [KsKc] for top set. 

Makhija lets out a small sigh as he shows his [AdAs]. Makhija gets no help from the [Jc] on the turn or the [7d] on the river and he is eliminated just shy of the money, while Kottler ascends to the top of the chip counts.

Jeremy Kottler – 1,500,000 (250 bb)
Amit Makhija – Eliminated in 58th place
